A Profile Analysis of the Society and Politics of Jeffersonian Virginia

Historical investigation into the constitutional convention held in Richmond, Virginia, in the fall and winter of 1829-30. Study attempts to show by "multivariate analysis" (i.e., not only political but also economic, demographic, religious, ethinic, educational, class, racial, intellectual, and emotional factors) that this convention--and, by implication, other similar public assemblies--can be viewed as a microcosm of the society in which the event takes place. Examines an important period in American history, the watershed years of the early 19th century when the Upper South turned away from Jefferson and the liberating ideals for which he stood and turned towards the states' right which were to lead ultimately to the Civil War.
